Projects and Programs
TrainingGOE has developed a unique, proprietary, copyrighted training program that can be offered locally within projects or at our Puget Sound training center. Training emphasizes hydroponic gardening and related food industries. Graduates are prepared to work in hydroponic gardens, and they also emerge with certificates in food handling, sanitation and related skills. Our core training program requires contact 160 hours.
Planning and BudgetingWe work with local project developers to assure their success to the maximum possible level. Funding must be locally developed for each situation. Our budget models provide for a large variety of garden and crop options.
Operational Management for Gardening ProjectsProjects can be locally developed and managed, or we can act as all or part of the management team. Assistance may range from concept to harvest. It is normally our practice to establish a project and withdraw, but the time to turnover may vary considerably.
Site Selection and PreparationWe are well connected with realty, architectural and contracting firms to help local project developers make good choices regarding location and facilities.
Crop Selection and Growth Phase PlanningWe help the local developer to select crops suitable to the local market. We assist with seed selection and train on propagation, phases of growth, harvesting and delivery planning.
Equipment Selection, installation and Technical SupportWe coordinate initial equipment selection, purchase and delivery. Projects may vary from turnkey to self-defined. We provide installation and training as needed, and we interact with project managers and vendor technical support to assure maximum efficiency and minimum downtime.
Management and Process Control SoftwareWe provide a growing, proprietary system of process control and management software that we provide as a service to projects. The software tracks all core aspects of production from propagation to harvest, provides key management reports, records employee activities, and produces reports and exports for management analysis and fiscal control.
Non-profit Certification AssistanceOur team can assist local projects with achieving non-profit status. We arrange legal and accounting services appropriate to each project; however, each project must also consider local requirements and conditions. We work under our own non-profit status or in cooperation with certified non-profit agencies depending on the nature of individual projects.

Teamwork Promotes Success
Our current emphasis is the production of microgreens in Washington State. Throughout 2020 we will be assisting local growers in cooperation with local farmers markets in cooperation with non-profit NGOs in the Puget Sound area. We also assist in organization of commercial hydroponic gardens. We can train prospective gardeners across the US. Contact us for more information or to discuss your project goals.
We are cognizant of the special issues created by the novel coronavirus pandemic and want to be part of the solution. We believe that fresh and local foods are part of the solution.
Our scalable customer information center (CIC) is available to all growers wishing to improve delivery. It tracks accounts, locations, previous customer history and much more. It maintains recurrent schedules and routes deliveries through your phone with turn-by-turn instructions, while the driver updates service history en route with immediate visibility in the office.
